Generic A.D.D Medications vs name brand? Anyone notice Difference?

New to the forum. Iím 33 male been diagnosed with ADD&ADHD since a young child. I have taken Dexedrine Spansule 10mg Name Brand,30mg morning and 30mg afternoon. Been on this since 14.
Last prescription my pharmacist switched me to generic pills, along with my friend because the government would no longer cover name brand for free.

My friend has noticed it made him slightly dizzy and feeling kinda of sick. I notice that itís somewhat more potent?.. Has anyone noticed anything Different?

Name on bottle is ACT. Which is an aberration. Iím in Canada.

Thanks so much for your time

I have only ever noticed a difference one time with a brand that was new at the time. I completely switched pharmacies in order to keep getting the brand that worked for me.
